Halogen, Xenon, Fluorescent and LED Options
When selecting between halogen, xenon, fluorescent or LED options. LED provides the greatest energy efficiency, and halogen the least. Furthermore, halogen and xenon bulbs become hot, creating a fire hazard in your home, and can cause burns if you strike them. Although LED lighting is likely to cost slightly more, its long life and energy efficiency proves it’s the best buy in the long term.
In addition, lighting is available that is directional, allowing you to adjust the light where you need it. Fluorescent lighting, like LED lighting, is cool enough that it won’t burn your hand and provides a bright white light for work areas. It provides a good choice second only to LED lighting.
